Weston Playhouse: ‘The Three Little Pigs’ the Musical
Three sibling piglets, a devoted single-mama pig, and a big bad wolf. You know the story. Now add to it a hip contemporary musical score written by an award-winning Broadway writing team, seven exceptional young performers from the country’s top undergraduate programs, the creative directorial talent of Weston Producing Director Tim Fort and the result is a sheer delight for young and old alike. The Weston Playhouse Theatre Company has a tradition of starting its summer season with a family-friendly show featuring its Young Company members. This year a talented group of seven performers anchors the season – beginning as the effervescent company of ‘The Three Little Pigs,’ continuing as regulars in Weston’s famed late-night cabaret, and finally appearing in key roles in the ensemble of Weston’s August block-buster musical,
‘A Chorus Line.’
The creative team who adapted the classic bedtime story, George Stiles (music) and Anthony Drewe (lyrics) have written more than a dozen musicals together. Their version of ’The Three Little Pigs’ appeals to all ages. The characters are engaging, the songs are fun and the show allows for audience participation. The production runs Thursday, June 19 through Saturday, July 12 at the seasonally-transformed Weston Rod and Gun Club, located at 982 Route 100, in Weston, Vt. Tickets are just $15 for adults and $8 for kids. Call 802-824-5288 or visit
